French Twist

Your last attempt at Parisian style was a bit of a bust. After all, it did follow a bottle of cheap Beaujolais and your 863rd viewing of Funny Face. Let’s just say your béret, horizontal stripe shirt and cropped pant ensemble turned out more gondolier than gamine.

Maui jewelry designers, Bella Rosta Resta and Rudy Castorina, have the perfect solution—merge the organic beauty of the islands with the structural, architectural elements of an urban, European city. The result—RueBelle Designs, the duo’s trés chic line of handmade jewelry and accessories inspired by their mutual muse—Paris, d'accord! 
 


Their couture creations mix sparkling gemstones, vintage charms, and gorgeous faux flowers with precious metals and luxurious fabrics, for a look that’s as apropos for hitting up Honolulu’s hotspots as it is for a stroll down the Champs Elysees.
 


Pair your favorite breezy sundress with RueBelle’s vibrant silk Pohuehue and 14K gold hoop earrings or one if its stunning vintage silk rose and ribbon hair accessories. Or, jazz up your sleekest LBD with one of the line’s Makau hook pendants strung on a chunky gold chain. Every piece offers up a stylish blend of high fashion and island tradition.
And as the French say, that special je ne sais quois.


RueBelle Designs, select styles available at Maui Hands Lahaina, 612 Front St., 808.667.9898, Maui Hands Paia, 808.579.924. Check out entire line here .
